Hello Mary Ann, next time you run the add if you do, you may want to leave out the “good credit required” This will limit your phone calls, because most people don’t have perfect credit. If you have to state a selling price always start high, because you can always go down on your price, but you can never go up in price.
Let your add run for at least two weeks, sometimes people don’t always buy the paper everyday, or they may have overlooked the add. If nothing happens after two weeks then you may want to rewrite your add.
The key is to get as many incoming calls as possible and then to screen them, if you sold the home advise your callers that these homes move very fast and that you will be glad to add them to your buyers database, as soon as we locate a home that you may be interested in I will give you a call.
The payments and lot rents should be around what the current apartment rents would be, or a rule of thumb, no more than one weeks pay.
Sit back let your adds run and return calls asap, and screen all callers. Maybe the call that you had was an investor, just ask and see, maybe you could work with this investor, they may have something you need, or maybe you have something they need, it’s great if we can all work together.
Hope this helps you…
